Famous Pier at Folly Beach
07-09-2022- Looks like they are building a new pier, so these photographs are from the past.
Here’s a link to what the new one looks like. The gift shop and observation deck of the Folly Beach Pier are open to the public while replacement construction continues for the remainder of the pier structure. The new Folly Beach Pier is expected to open in the Spring of 2023. As the former, which opened in 1995, reached the end of its useful life, Charleston County Parks is moving forward with the creation of the next Folly Beach Fishing Pier that will serve our community for generations to come. Follow along with the entire transition here.
I love Folly Beach, has a magical feeling to the place. I spent endless hours walking on its beautiful sands. This island has an old wooden pier, this pier held a strong composition for me, blending man-made architecture with nature and reminds me of old New Jersey shore piers that I hung out at as a kid.
This image was brought to life after looking at the awesome work of Peter Lik. I have watched all his TV shows, and he has been a real motivating force in my photography. Check out Peters photograph of a pier in La Jolla, California, which was the inspiration for this post.

I love piers, wood piers even more so. It’s kind of sad that the wood pier which is beautiful has come to the end of its usefulness, it’s so pretty. So happy to know that you have immortalized the pier with these beautiful images.
